Question Quagga OSPFv3 where is default-information originate for ::/0??


I want to redistribute a default route for ::/0 in OSPFv3. In OPSFv2 I use the command:

router ospf
  default-information originate always
default-information: Control distribution of default information
originate: Distribute a default route
always: Always advertise default route

However when I try to do this in OSPFv3 for ::/0 I do not get this option.

Router(config-ospf6)# ?
  area                   OSPFv6 area parameters
  auto-cost              Calculate OSPF interface cost according to bandwidth
  end                    End current mode and change to enable mode
  exit                   Exit current mode and down to previous mode
  interface              Enable routing on an IPv6 interface
  list                   Print command list
  log-adjacency-changes  Log changes in adjacency state
  no                     Negate a command or set its defaults
  quit                   Exit current mode and down to previous mode
  redistribute           Redistribute
  router-id              Configure OSPF Router-ID
  stub-router            Make router a stub router
  timers                 Adjust routing timers

If you check the Quagga mailing list archives, you'll find this to be a known issue.

The relevant default-information command just isn't implemented (yet?), so the only workaround is to create a static route (to ::/0 or perhaps 2000::/3) and redistribute that instead.
